​​SAN and Hyper-V cluster

​​​A 4 node Hyper-V cluster was created using Microsof​t Hyper-V technology.  A SAN was installed and configured for the cluster to utilize as storage space.  The Hyper-V cluster allows virtual servers/computers to be hosted on each node.  The nodes als​o provide failover technology, giving the County a high-availability environment for the virtual servers that reside on the cluster.  The 4 node cluster is in addition to the 2 node cluster that was built 2 years ago.  In all, there are currently 33 virtual servers being hosted in the clusters.

​​​GIS mapping server

​​​Updated the County's GIS system to ArcGIS 10.3.  The servers reside on a virtualized environment on the Hyper-V cluster with high availability.  This upgrade greatly improved mapping speeds and capabilities for the County.​
